WE ARE REVIEWING AND WILL FOLLOW THE GAP GUIDELINES FOR 2021. WATCH FOR UPCOMING CHANGES
The following changes have been made. These changes will apply to all scheduled tournaments thru the remainder of the season.
1. No entry payments will be accepted at the registration table, the day of the tournament. All entries must be either on line payment or received by mail on or prior to the registration deadline.
2. One player or all players in each foursome will be responsible for entering scores electronically at each hole, utilizing the golf genius app. Instructions on use will be available by a representative of the YCAGA the morning of the tournament. Upon completion of your round, you will have 15 minutes to verify your scores as the are posted and advise the YCAGA of any corrections with verification. If scores are correct you will not need to notify the YCAGA.
3. The YCAGA will be following the tournament guidelines as set out by the GAP, with adjustments for YCAGA Tournaments. Our guidelines can be viewed by clicking the following link. These will be updated as the season continues and new guidelines are put out by the State and the GAP.
4. The YCAGA has set the following minimum and maximum tournament participation (applicable to men and women's division separately) 30 minimum (as of registration end date) 120 maximum (as of registration end date).
5. We will still have a skins game. If you plan on entering into the skins, you must have the correct change, to eliminate handling of monies. Skins entry is $10.00 per player in all of our events. If you do not have the correct change, you will not be able to enter the skins competition.
The YCAGA strongly urges everyone to download our guidelines and review. Any questions should be directed to David Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bob Ruby (email@example.com)
